Our Mission Statement:

Our primary goal is to remove dogs in danger of being euthanized from shelter environments and foster them until permanent homes are found through our adoption program. We believe in the spay and neuter of all animals, regardless of breed, in order to aid in the prevention of pet overpopulation. We provide our dogs with shelter, proper veterinary care and any necessary rehabilitation. We rescue all breeds of dogs and they come to us from a variety of different sources. Most of our dogs are rescued from our city and county shelters, others are strays, neglected, or abandoned due to their owners various financial situations. 


Who We Are:

Animals Rule Placement Foundation is a registered 501 (C) (3) Non-Profit Animal Welfare Organization Tax ID #13-4264510. We are a group of non paid volunteers who have come together to rescue and foster animals in need of adoption and find them permanent forever homes. We are based out of the south bay, in the city of San Pedro, California. Our funding comes entirely from donations, our adoption fees and fund raisers. We do not receive any City, County or Government funding. Your tax deductible donation is used 100% for the welfare and veterinary care of the animals while they are with us.


2018 Accomplishments ~ Year in review

We are very proud of our accomplishments in 2018.  We rescued and adopted out a total of 78 dogs, 4 cats, 3 Rabbits and 2 guinea Pigs.   A total of 87 animals.  All 78 dogs, 4 cats an d 2 rabbits were spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.  Alot of our dogs had expensive dentals and or special orthopedic surgeries in addition to the basics to make them ready for their forever homes.

The breakdown of our total amount adopted in 2018 is as follows. We saved a total of 13 dogs on their last day from various city and county shelters.  We took in 34 owner surrendered dogs thus preventing them from entering the shelter system. These dogs were surrendered to us for various reasons such as; housing relocations, job layoff's, and straight up financial difficulties.  Some of these families lost their homes and could not even afford basic vet care for their dogs. We also took in 10 dogs from China, thus helping them escape severe abuse and the Chinese meat market. We took in 15 stray dogs as well as 3 dogs whose owners died.  We took in 7 dogs from Washington Blvd Animal Hospital who were surrendered due to the owner not being able to afford medical care and/or chose euthanasia as a solution.  We took in 3 dogs who were returned from previous adoptions for various personal reasons.  In addition to all of this, Animals Rule Rescue was able to assist 12 low income/homeless families with pet food and Vet assistance throughout the year.  We helped 2 families with spay/neuter of their personal pets thus helping to keep them in their current homes.

In April 2018 we attended the Americas Family Pet Expo at the Orange County Fairgrounds in which we adopted 2 dogs into new homes and raised $3,390.00 to help pay for our vet bills and specialty surgeries.  In June of 2018 we attended the Super Pet Adoption event at the Irvine Shelter.  We placed 4 dogs into homes at that event.   In October 2018 we attended the Manhattan Beach Fire Department's Hometown Fair and we adopted 4 dogs into good homes and raised $2,536.00 to help pay for our vet bills.  At each of these adoption events our volunteers interacted with the public and provided educational material on the importance of spay/neuter, yearly vaccines, and microchipping.

We placed several 'special needs' animals this year that we are quite proud of.  We adopted 1 dog who was completely deaf into her forever home.   We helped several parvo puppies recover and go on to be adopted.  We had dogs with eye eneculations, fractured jaw and fractured legs all have surgery and completely recover.  We did dentals with extractions on over 20 dogs this year costing us on average of $800 per dog for these procedure alone.

We accomplished all of this while holding down jobs of our own, marriages, and mortgages.  We are dedicated to the well being of our rescue dogs and we love each and every one who passes through our rescue on their way to forever homes.  Please help us rescue even more dogs this year in 2019 by donating to our cause.  It's time to give back and help make a difference in the lives of homeless pets. Don't Buy, Don't Breed, Adopt!

Thank you,
